If like me, you can’t bear the thought of walking there and back, and need a circular walk…here’s my top short circular Pocklington dog walk. The route is mainly footpaths and tracks, with a short road section. Offering some lovely views over Pocklington town.
This short Pocklington walk is 0.7 miles, and should take 15-20 minutes. It took us 25 this morning as I stopped to take pictures, and Bonnie seemed to having a ‘slow’ day!
Like most of the walks from The Bungalow you’ll start by crossing the road and taking the public foot path up the hill sign posted Kilnwick Percy. Walk up the hill and across Gus Walker Drive. Continue climbing steeply up the steps until the path levels out and divides. You will need to turn bear here. Walk along the left of the hedge by the side of the golf course.
You will now find your self on Chapel Hill. Which was an outstanding beauty spot in Pocklington before the housing development which now covers most of the hillside. When you reach a chalk path, turn left, this will take you down the hill. Here you will see some lovely views over Pocklington.
Looking in to the distance on a clear day you should be able to spot the power stations. From the left to right they are named Drax, Eggborough and Ferrybridge. On an evening you might be lucky enough to catch a stunning sunset over the town.
Descend the hill and on reaching the bottom turn left along Denison Road. After the house numbered 14 turn left again up an alleyway/snicket/ginnel (delete…depending on where you’re from!).
On exit from the alleyway/snicket/ginnel turn left again and then right up the steep hill, back onto St Helens Road to complete your Pocklington dog walk!
